Easter Weekend

The weather has been pretty cold and rainy in our area so our little family celebrated a quiet Easter weekend at home this year, filled with cooking, eating, playing, and naps–it was wonderful! Ellie got a visit from the Easter Bunny, who she is not very happy with, because he took all of her pacifiers in exchange for presents this year. We’ve been trying our hardest not to say his name or the “p” word, since it just brings up bad memories for her, LOL!

I even had my first experience making a holiday meal, and it turned out pretty great if I do say so. Bourbon-glazed ham, baked beans, mashed potatoes and deviled eggs were all on the menu with chocolate chip cookies for desert. Andrew and Ellie loved it and we still have leftovers two days later!

Because the weather has been so gross, Ellie’s daycare had their annual Easter Egg Hunt inside this year. It was a bit cramped, but the kids didn’t seem to mind. Her class had crafts like making a bunny out of paper plates and construction paper, and decorating sugar cookies before hunting for eggs. Ellie couldn’t wait to see what was inside each egg she picked up, so she would open it immediately and eat whatever chocolate she found before moving onto the next. This girl loves chocolate!
